Went out to El Medano without booking on a Friday night. Big mistake. All our usual haunts were full. Found Agua Viva never eaten here before so a little apprehensive as it was almost empty. We were not disappointed. The Tapas Starters were some if the best I've ever tasted on the island. Had lamb for main course with mint... More

Had the worst meal ever! Chicken was dry, lasagne was dry, chips were horrible. Service was poor, we hadn't made our minds up when the waiter came to serve us because it was all in Spanish so we had a dictionary to try and work it out. The waiter then left us and came back a good 15-20 mins later... More

We went here because it looked really clean, was busy and said gastro bar. We thought we would be in for some really nice food. Unfortunately this was not to be. I ordered sparkling water and got mineral water. The menu was all in Spanish so we had to guess most of it which was not a problem but gave... More

A nice terrace to people watch from, ovelooking the beach. If you don't like cigarette smoke, sit at the tables nearest to the town centre i.e.upwind. We first sat down just for coffees, which, being Italian, were better than the Spanish equivalent (not so bitter). As time drifted by, we decided to stay for lunch. The restaurant offers typical Spanish... More

Lovely little bar to sit and watch the world go by comfortable shade or sun worth a visit. Wide range of drinks and nothing to much trouble for staff. We did not eat here personally but the meals looked nice

Gave this place a poor review last year, but we gave it another chance on this years trip and probably one of the best paella ever eaten. It looks like they have appointed a new manager (nicked from another very good restaurant maybe, he recognised us and came over for a chat) Service was great, price very good food excellent... More
